I'm so glad my Aunt called for help. My mom had brain surgery earlier this year. While recovering she got an infection and was in a coma for 30 days. After she came out of the coma, she began working with a physical therapist. She started making some progress but has a very long way to go. The insurance discharged her anyway and we had to scramble to find supplies. Access Partnership was able to give me a wheelchair and offered to connect me with anything else I would need during this difficult transition. Thank You.

I work full time as a preschool teacher and cannot afford dental insurance but make "too much" money for government assistance. Access Partnership connected me to a voucher program that alleviated my dental pain and saved my tooth! Thanks Access Partnership! Now when my students make me laugh, I don't have to hide my smile.

I am a part time staff member and was able to connect a domestic violence victim with much needed mobility equipment they left behind when they fled a situation.

I have COPD and am on oxygen. I had a portable machine that broke and my insurance wouldn't cover a new one. I have been stuck in the house for over 3 months. Someone told me about Access Partnership and I called them for help. They didn't have one but told me if one was donated they would let me know. Out of the blue they called and had one for me! Most places will forget about you unless you keep bugging them- but they remembered and I have my portable oxygen machine so I'm not stuck in the house anymore!!!

I had a client that had had the same shower chair for 20 years and I couldn't believe that. My boss told me about Access Partnership and they were more than willing to provide me with a shower chair for my client. I can't wait to surprise her with it. Thank you so much Access!

You do so much for the community. You guys truly are a blessing. I have a client who lives in a very bad flood zone and they lost a lot of their furniture because it had grown mold. You guys were able to provide me with a lot of different things that will help this family immensely. Again thank you so much and God bless you.

There was a gentleman that suffered from a stroke and it has effected his arm in a terrible way. A friend called Access Partnership for him and they had the proper equipment he would need to ensure his arm was given the support it would need. Thank you again Access!

Over the weekend an elderly gentleman's house caught fire and he lost everything. Besides memories and personal belongings, he also lost his oxygen concentrator and was unable to get another one from his insurance company until a sufficient amount of hoops are jumped through. Access Partnership was able to provide him with that oxygen concentrator so at least it was one less thing he had to worry about while dealing with such a tragedy.

Thank you for your help. I just talked to the Collection Agency, my Acct with them has a zero balance. Evidently your email on my behalf worked. God Bless you and the staff at Access.

I have to say that what this organization does is amazing! I thought that there would be a small cost or catch to receiving any equipment, but when they told me it was completely free a weight lifted off my shoulders. Now I have what my mother needs when she comes to my home for visits. I would gladly volunteer my services to your organization because helping the community is such a satisfying thing. Thank you so much for your help and everything you do for our community.

I just have to say thank you again for your help in giving me what I needed. I had been getting the run around with trying to find a replacement face mask for my CPAP machine, and was tired and frustrated. I am glad that I was referred to you to find help. I am completely grateful for your kindness.

My father had a double bypass surgery and one of the valves placed in his heart had collapsed. He went into cardiac arrest a little over a month ago and doctors also say that he suffered from a stroke. Thanks to Access Partnership I was able to find a hospital bed and so much more that my father needed and now I can breath a easier knowing that my parents don't have to worry about where they can get these supplies and how much it will cost. You guys don't know how much of a blessing this really is. Thank you again.

I am so excited that I found an organization that believes in giving back to the community. Access Partnership consists of genuine people that do whatever they can to help those in need. I highly recommend anyone with medical needs to contact them.

I was in need of a rolling walker and my insurance wouldn't cover it because I had not been with them for 5 years. The walker that I owned was a safety risk, and I wasn't sure what to do. A friend told me about Access Partnership, and I was very pleased with the service they provided to me. I think that it is awesome that they do what they do because there are so many people that need help with different medical needs. It's a comfort to know that there are still people that care.

When we look back in life, what we remember most are those times when kindness, thoughtfulness and support made a difference in our life. My family and I thank Access Partnership for the donation of the hospital bed for my brother.

In 2008 I coded and was dead for 37 minutes. The treatments I underwent after that depleted all the calcium in my body and all my teeth started breaking off. Access Partnership helped me get my remaining teeth pulled at no cost so I could get dentures. Without them I couldn't smile at my grandbabies.

This is a wonderful organization. As someone who works full time but still can't afford dental care, I am so thankful there is a a group like this to help. They were so helpful. And never made me feel bad for actually needing help.

One of my first weeks with Access Partnership was during a Dental Outreach and it has been non stop since. I was amazed at how great the need for dental care in the community, the amount of people served and the gratefulness of those served. Initially this was a job to support my family and pay the bills. Now, however, it has become a mission to do everything in my power to connect the uninsured and under served to health care. Access Partnership has changed my life by letting me help others better theirs.
